An investigation surrounding a video of Lima police officers and a pregnant woman is still ongoing.

The video, which first appeared on social media back in September, involves 32-year-old Kenyatta Secession being approached by two LPD officers that recognized Secession for her three failure to appear warrants.  Secession claims that the officers pushed her onto her stomach and put their knees in her back, even though she says she told them she was pregnant.

After the video went viral, an investigation within the Lima Police Department began, and Chief Kevin Martin says that the investigation isn't over yet.

"I have received the investigation and it’s currently under review, I’m in consultation with the law apartment," said Chief Martin.
